We give you the tips to purchase the style that’s right for you!

There are many Luxury Wigs styles to choose from. We want you to look and feel the best in your new wig, so here are some tips on choosing styles that best compliment certain face shapes!

Heart Face

Characteristics: Wide forehead and a narrower chin. Most hairstyles suit; long, mid length and short.

Bring some hair onto the forehead to disguise its width. Keep the hair close to the head at the eyes. Full bodies around the jaw and in front of the earlobes.

Oval Face

Characteristics: Longer than wide, with a jaw that's narrower than the cheekbones.

Because the oval shaped face has no dominant areas and is so proportional, this face looks good with just about any hairstyle, length or texture.

Round Face

Characteristics: Almost as wide as it is long, gradual curving features rather than hard angles. Jawline is full and round.

Layered hairstyles that do not look too thick on the face or crown area are best for this face shape. Bangs swept on the side are also perfect. Add height on top of the crown to elongate the face.

Square Face

Characteristics: Square and angular jawline. Width of cheekbones and forehead similar as is width of forehead and jawline.

Long hairstyles with layers starting from the jawline or medium hairstyles with choppy or wavy ends are suited to this face shape. Avoid blunt bangs and chin length styles. Sweep hair off the forehead to elongate the face.
